These Boots Are Made For Walking

i had been searching high and low for a perfect boots before my trip to melbourne last month. why must boots? well, ahem… u gotta travel in style, no?! :p and and and…. it was winter time so a pair of boots will warm your feet. not that i dont already have one but as u know me most of my shoes are with heels, high heels!!! even my boots are with high heeled T____T not very practical for long walk / traveling.

so i roamed all shops selling shoes in miri with a mission. to find a pair of boots that is meant for walking!!! and thank God i finally found one. a perfect one!!! ahhh…. bliss!!

now let’s see the criteria one by one.

criteria #1 : dark brown – checked!!

if u look closely they are dark coffee brown.

i will not accept other color. and i am not a fan of black boots although it is easy to match with any outfit. NO!

criteria #2: soft and comfy – checked!!

look at the exterior. made of super soft and smooth velvety fabric.

criteria #3: keep my feet warm – checked!!

this is a bonus point!! i dont need a leg warmer anymore!!

while it is soft on the outside, it is cosy in the inside with this thick cotton lining inside. brilliant for winter!!

criteria #4: kitten heeled – checked!!

hehehe…. cant get a short girl away from her heels :p na-nah!!

although i was looking for something that is meant for walking i did not say that it must be a flat one. i still insisted to look for something with a bit of visible heels. kitten heeled would be just nice!!

and ta-daa…

at least give me 1 inch la ok...

criteria #5: versatile. checked!!

wearing it with only one way would be boring…. and this boots gives you not 1, not 2, not 3 but 5 different types of style.

style 1

tall and sleek

style 2

or you can fold it over to show off that lining

style 3

maybe u prefer mid-calf boots. with more lining more floded out. who need a leg-warmer?!

style 4

or what about pushing it all down?! fun, aei!!

style 5

u can go as low as u want and further fold that awesome lining out to enhance the look.

there. are you smitten yet?! i love love love my boots!!

criteria #6: easy to pack. checked!

OMG!!! just fold them over and it fits just nice in the luggage bag. simply genius!!

i cannot stop bragging about this boots la. really. how brilliant can it be?! what more can i ask for?! it fits ALL the criteria that i needed. love. love. love.

and do u still want to know more awesome fact about this boots?!! i cannot wait to tell you…

*clear throat*

all the awesomeness of this pair of boots only cost me… jeng… jeng… jeng…

RM61!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (after 70% discount)

WHAT THE HECK??!! right?!!

i cannot believe my ears when i heard the salesgirl told me the price. my goodness!! why i always can buy cheap shoes one??!! why?!! God you are so good to me!!!

and u know what’s even more funny is?! or it was more sad than funny actually. when i wanted to pay i realized i only have RM5 in my wallet!!!! i forgot to withdraw money!! T_____T

so i only have RM5!!!!

WHAT THE HECK??!!! again, right??!!

desperate kiasu that other ppl will get the boots i asked the salesgirl to keep them for me and i will come for it the next day or day after. but the salesgirl had a better idea!!!! guess what??!! she suggested that i put down a deposit for them. reason being that it might not be her that will serve me the next day or day after. and…. wait for it…. i can put down with just RM5!!!!! LOL~!!!!! eh, since when does this ever applied for shoes??!! in a mall??!!! LOL~

and me being more fascinated with the idea at that moment decided to play along with it. how often do u put RM5 as deposit??!!! so why not role with it??!! furthermore i was butt lazy to go down to the atm to withdraw. when i paid my deposit, the salesgirl further showed me a small cabinet full of items that were being held by deposit from other people just to convince that i wasnt the only person :p LOL!!

to cut long story short i returned the next day with full payment and walked away with my new love!!

last but not least…..

ready to walk around the world!!

i’ve walked around melbourne in this. indeed. these boots are made for walking!!! awesome!!!

be blessed, peeps!!

The Shoes Story

this is a story about shoes. not just any shoes. but shoes with high heels….

me: mummy i want that one… *pointing at a pair of black shiny mary jane with lacy bow on the front with slight visible heels*
TheMother: why would u want to wear that kind of shoes? those would kill ur feet when u ppl go around town! ur blister will cut further more.

ok, i had a blistered toe that time. still, i want that rather hard shiny pvc heels. lalalala…..

me: i want…..!!!! *sulky face*
TheMother: *sigh* ok, let’s try them on and we’ll see.
me: *couldn’t stop smiling*
TheMother: *shakes head* i think we better buy this one *shoving over a pair of white flat/ skimmer with rainbow colours stupid looking little cartoons on it*
TheShopOwner: yes dear, i think this would suits u more if u are going for a sightseeing later.
me: *tantrum*

these two must have been conspiring againts me T___T i proceeded by trying them on anyway. and i obliged when TheMother paid for the flat at the end. with both eyes still pierced at the black heeled shiny mary jane i promise myself i’ll have my own high heels one day….. to cut the story short i was thankful to TheMonther for not buying it though cos the flat was sooooo comfy that i forgot that i had blister.

and u might wonder why were we looking for a new pair of shoes for me. tell u the truth. it’s a rare occasion. we were poor and we only afford to buy new shoes when there’s something special going on like Crhistmas. but that time the special event was i was representing the school for a story-telling competetion in miri. since i dint have a proper shoes (i only have a pair of blue slippers with Bugs Bunny on it. if u are an 80s bb, u’ll know wat kind is it) and we’ll have some sightseeing activities in between so i seriously needed a comfy shoes. itu lah ceritanya….

and owh… i’m so predictable. with that i leave u with my current fav shoes. and with crazy prices like these… i can sleep with a smile.

#1

#2

a fav!!! faster guess how much is this booties?! faster.... i cant wait to tell u!

#3

haaa.... sexy sequin shoes!! i like!! guess... guess... guess..... how much?!! :p

have u guess?!

why not?! T___T

ok lah, let me tell u.

the booties and the sequin shoes cost ONLY RM30 each!! after 70% off. CRAZY OR NOT??!! why so cheap one hor??! aiyoo…. i bought them both at that instance for fear other ppl will get it. siao i tell u. this shop is fabulous!! and i just bought a can-can hat from there too recently. bliss…..
